A day after he was censured by the Election Commission for saying that voters in Goa should accept money from Congress and BJP but vote for AAP, CM Kejriwal targeted the Election Commission, wondering if it was taking orders from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

“The Election Commission actually waits for Modi’s speech in Lucknow to announce the dates (for polls), their independence is under question,” he said in an interview with TOI.

“Actually, during Modi’s tenure, he has compromised most institutions. RBI, CBI and CIC have become a joke. One of the information commissioners said show Modi’s degrees and he was transferred. Is this the way you run a government?” AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal asked.

He further stated, “When Modiji came to power, he used to abuse Vadra and Congressmen. He never said a word against AAP. But in the past two and a half years, he has not arrested them, but our 20 MLAs have been arrested.”
